I'd like to know that, too.

One hypothesis would be a computer with some faulty but otherwise stable RAM. It's perfectly possible to use memmap to tell the kernel to stay the hell away from specified regions. I'm currently doing to on my HTPC[1].

[1] Strictly speaking, it's an entire module which is faulty. The reason I don't just remove it altogether is because the motherboard doesn't seem to like my new RAM sticks alone, and needs the old stick to trigger some fallback mode. Presumably.
